A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master was probably a career peak for actress Tuesday Knight. Well, the first act of that horror sequel was anyway. Her character may not have been long for this world, but at least she got a chance to sing the opening credits song before getting tossed in a furnace by Freddy.
Over the years NECA Toys has delivered the goods on a constant basis. At this year's Toy Fair they introduced a trio of new Freddy figures from the classic A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise that showcased some of their best work with the character to date. Now comes the fourth and, dare we say it, the best.
With the remake slinking out of the boiler room and into theaters soon, I became intoxicated with revisiting A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master – the most financially successful Nightmare sequel before it was dethroned by Freddy vs. Jason in 2003. The Dream Master took in $49.3 million domestic gross at the box office in ’88, and inspired the production of more Freddy games, toys, dolls, surfboards, pogo sticks, race cars, planes and railway systems than anyone could’ve predicted.
